AMD plans a summer of fun with RX Vega and Threadripper

We have been told by AMD that the Threadripper CPUs will have a release date in Summer of this year with a more specific date following Computex. At the event it was announced that the laptop houses 8 cores, this is beefy CPU in a laptop. AMD brings their A-game to Computex, and for a good reason: as a PC focused show, it gives them great exposure, but it also allows them to promote their OEM relationships, the latter of which are crucial to AMD's survival as the CPU underdog.

At a press conference on the sidelines of the annual Computex trade show in Taipei, AMD made a number of announcements covering products across its portfolio, including the Epyc platform for servers, Ryzen desktop and mobile CPUs, Threadripper enthusiast CPUs, and Radeon Vega graphics processors.

Angela Merkel says Europe 'must take fate into its own hands'
Were Merkel to signal a German pivot away from the US , she would hardly choose a Bavarian beer party as the venue. Rapturous applause greeted her fiery calls for Europeans to fight for their own destiny.

Although the relative performance of Intel's and AMD's new processors is unknown, AMD teased a few more details about ThreadRipper at the Computex conference in Taiwan yesterday. Previous ROG gaming products based on AMD designs included Athlon 64 FX processors and were desktop models, until now.

For server customers, AMD promised that the first off-the-shelf machines featuring its Epyc processors in single- and dual-socket configurations would be hitting the market on June 20th. But coming so close to the Ryzen launch, it doesn't sound like it'll be radically different.

Regrettably, We Must Report That Donald Trump Is Back On His Bullshit

AMD's revitalization of ultra-premium PCs for the high-end desktop (HEDT) market was recently cemented with the announcement of Ryzen™ Threadripper™, targeted at the world's fastest ultra-premium desktop systems, and scheduled for release in summer 2017. A working sample of a sub-15mm thin 2-in-1 with a Ryzen Mobile processor was shown on stage. Ryzen Threadripper will feature 16-cores and 32-threads and it will utilize the new X399 platform and LGA socket. Major Taiwanese brands such as Asrock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI will have motherboards ready when the chip ships. Where things really get exciting is when pairing Threadripper with Vega, AMD's next-generation graphics architecture that will first be made available to professionals in the Radeon RX Vega Frontier Edition. The demo featured the Ryzen mobile-powered notebook playing HD video content.

In fact, AMD said that the hotly anticipated Radeon RX Vega GPUs destined for mainstream PCs won't be launched until SIGGRAPH 2017, which takes place in Los Angeles, kicking off on July 30.
